It's a lifestyle and when lived, speaks for itself. Often we hear about keeping things simple, imagining our world in that state and then we go back to the rigid routines that say otherwise. The true freedom comes from a type of simplicity that has its own legs i.e. moves with its own purpose in mind. It simply takes charge. That's what makes its simple!
CREATED & BORN
Small children don't have to be told to keep things simple or even understand what you are saying if you did so. Why? Because they are in a default simple state of being that needs no coaching, explaining or effort and the most endearing thing about all that is that it works so well all on its own too
RELAX WILL YOU
One of the signs of not being simple as in easy-peasy nice and breezy is that you are stressing out, on the edge and in a state of constant ambition which makes it acceptable but is not simple in its state or application. Simple is as simple does and because it is...we tend to not have faith that it will produce
That leads us to light a fire under what we are doing because it is not unfolding or coming along on our time-line. This is willfulness at work which is no respecter of simplicity. Wanting something so bad that we sacrifice the actual dynamics of it coming to us is us putting forth more effort than is required
ARE WE HAVING SIMPLE YET?
Remember, this is a post with a subject and focus on simplicity and not how to get what you want at all costs and under any conditions. While being aggressive in the going about of having, we must respect the difference between "want" and "need". Pause and reflect here. There is a diffrence
WANT & NEED
Need likes and supports simplicity because it recognizes that this must take place and it usually does too. Wanting, if done at a steady and effortless pace, works but not if we turn-on the after-burners and go all out to accomplish what will come about if we let it. Want to need or need to want?
Look at it this way. Have you ever been so hungry that it consumed you until you were able to address it and satisfy it? Remember how at some point during the feeding frenzy that you satisfied yourself and slowed down making it less important and then when full, dismissed the whole event altogether
IT WILL HAPPEN
Why would anything that comes about need to arrive in an urgent or upset state when it can come about as a matter of fact in its own timing? No need to have high points which produce a low point but instead a steady as she goes dynamic. In that framework, all that needs to get done...GETS DONE!
WHEN DID I BECOME NOT SIMPLE?
Simplicity...we have it as a child without knowing it. We experience it after the fact all throughout our lives and as we grow older, relish and support its return to the head of the table once a gain. The question begs: Why did we ever leave this state? What was the event that robbed us of it?
COMMON SENSE & SIMPLICITY
Simplicity begs the obvious to have its way while we tend to interfere, turn it up or down or deny it. Common sense works well with simplicity too. What has to be done is shown and submitted and if we accept and activate it, that's how simple it is or can be. Today, a vital component is missing....
If one would just believe, for beliefs sake that something can and is so easy and accessible then it will show you through demonstration the truth of that eternal statement. You see the secret it uses is that it operates in its own timing which is today different from yours. You must learn to go with that flow
WINNERS BY DESIGN
If you have matured and have lived for any length of time, you have seen now how it all comes about and not just for yourself but for everyone else as well. It always does. Why? We weren't put here to be defeated, to lose, go without or be mocked for that matter. Quite the contrary. We are all winners
Life is a rewarding experience if you let it do what it knows how to do. Trust in yourself and in the Self-Maker and the mystery of how it will work for you will be revealed here and now and not when you have reached the end of a stressful and tedious episode that could have been avoided
By the way...our health is at risk when we don't follow the natural flow and instead add or take from it. The first symptom is the body speaking up saying this is not what I was programed to do but I will do my best despite this. Prolonged arguing with the body produces its failure usually via organs failing
Simple is not to be looked down on, disputed or spoken about as a place that one knows exists but instead, it should be the destination and the home sweet home of the sojourner. In that world, contentment and satisfaction is served up non-stop before the asking....Have your fill of that!
